THE Her­sham Res­i­dents’ As­so­ci­a­tion (HRA) is keen to pro­mote and support com­mu­nity ac­tiv­i­ties like the Christ­mas event tak­ing place on Satur­day. Please come and join us, and see the Mayor of Elm­bridge of­fi­cially turn on the vil­lage’s Christ­mas tree lights at 5pm on Her­sham Green. He will be ably as­sisted by a spe­cial guest from the North Pole, who will be ar­riv­ing by sleigh at about 4.30pm. The Prom­e­nade Choir will warm things up at the

David Lock Her­sham Green shop­ping cen­tre from 4.15pm and help lead car­ols around the Christ­mas tree on the green from 4.45pm. The pub­lic will be en­cour­aged to join in, with carol sheets pro­vided. Bring your lanterns and torches so you can see the words. The Prom­e­nade Choir is an ex­cel­lent youth choir and I hope you can come along and ap­pre­ci­ate them. Mince pies and mulled wine will be avail­able after- wards at The Water­mans Arms from 5pm to 6pm, when the mayor will draw the win­ning raf­fle ticket for the Waitrose ham­per. Christ­mas is a good op­por­tu­nity to support the lo­cal shops so why not wear your best (most out­ra­geous) Christ­mas jumper and do some of your Christ­mas shop­ping in Her­sham dur­ing the af­ter­noon?

A range of other ac­tiv­i­ties have been ar­ranged in the Her­sham Green cen­tre. There will be car­ols from Churches To­gether in Her­sham at 11am, plus a chil­dren’s shop­ping quiz. Mince pies, mulled wine and chest­nuts will be avail­able dur­ing the af­ter­noon. Don’t miss the Her­sham Hounds gath­er­ing on the green at 12.30pm and take a look at the lo­cal his­tory dis­play in The Water­mans Arms from 3pm to 4pm. You can join Coun­cil­lor Roy Green and oth­ers to dis­cuss old Her­sham over a drink. Please come along and help Her­sham mark Christ­mas to­gether as a com­mu­nity.
